Abuse in Care Homes

We provide free, confidential advice to the victims of sexual and physical abuse whether the abuse occurred as a child or adult and understand just how difficult it is to find the strength to talk about sexual or physical abuse

100% of our Care Home abuse compensation claims are made on a No Win No Fee basis which means that you do not have to worry about any financial risk at all as if your Care Home abuse compensation claim is unsuccessful it will not cost you anything.

Care Homes were created for elderly and disabled people as places where they could be given the care they needed in a safe and supportive environment.  The people who ran and worked at the Care Homes had a duty of care to look after the best interests of the elderly and disabled people who lived there but unfortunately this did not always happen.

There are numerous examples where the standards of care at Care Homes dropped well below the appropriate levels and sadly, the end result of that in some cases was staff members carrying out abuse on a variety of levels:

 

  • Bullying
  • Emotional abuse
  • Neglect
  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Sexual abuse

In care home abuse claims against Care Homes, not only is the employee Abuser responsible, we will successfully argue that the employer, the Care Home itself, is also responsible for failing to control it’s staff members.

Depending on the facts we can also make a care home abuse claim against the Local Authority and Social Services who have the ultimate responsibility to oversee Care homes and ensure the expected levels of care are met.

Understandably, not many care home abuse victims come forward at the time of the abuse for feat that the abuse will become worse or that they will not be believed by those in Authority.

Many victims of care home abuse will not report the abuse for various reasons.  Just because a long time has passed, you can still make a care home abuse claim so that you can seek the justice you deserve.  Time limits do exist to make care home abuse claims but we can successfully pursue your claim regardless of the length of time which has passed.
